Wine guitar

This guitar has a solid birch body with grape bunches and leaves carved into the upper and lower bouts.  The grapes were stained with Chianti wine, and the leaves were stained with a concoction of boiled rushes.  The neck is maple and the headstock and fingerboard are both ebony with a wine glass inlaid into the fingerboard and a bottle of wine inlaid in the headstock.  The humbucker pickups were hand-wound, and selected with a 5-way rotary switch.
